Good morning,

Is a 18 year old legally allowed to work as a personal assistant in CO doing research, phone calls, running errand etc? is there a minimum in terms of hours allowed to work per week?

Thank you

Yes

No, your employer may have a minimum number of hours they require you to work, but there is not regulatory minimum number of hours required

An 18-year-old is an adult. There are no restrictions other than the restrictions imposed on everyone else (min. wage, OT, OT pay, etc.).

A 16-year-old is restricted in the number of hours they can work during the week while school is in session.

Either way, no one is really checking, so in the absence of a complaint, the government will not do anything.

Well, technically, a 16-year-old can legally work in Colorado...

There are no work restrictions at age 18 aside from those related to alcohol. Some work is legal starting at age 9. https://www.colorado.gov/pacific/sit...wFactSheet.pdf

As for alcohol - the restrictions are as follows:
Age to Pour 18, if supervised by someone who is 21.
Age to Sell 18 to sell or participate in a sale in grocery stores or convenience stores.
21 to sell in a liquor store.
Age to Serve 18, if supervised by someone who is 21.
Serving Note Tavern employees must be 21 unless the tavern regularly serves full meals.

I think you can work on a family farm starting at age zero.
